Dumbbell Chest Press Overview

The dumbbell chest press is a great exercise to build your upper body strength. With dumbbells, you need to be more focused while performing exercises. You need to stabilize the weight in each hand, and hence, the exercise works great for both sides of your chest.

The exercise helps in developing strength in your entire torso. It also prepares you well for other exercises such as overhead press, barbell bench press, etc. The exercise also helps in improving your range of motion and induces massive muscle gains.

How to Do It

  1. Lie on a bench with a dumbbell in each hand.
  2. Your hands should be on the sides of your shoulders.
  3. Press your feet into the ground.
  4. Press the weight above your chest by extending your arms completely.
  5. Bring them down, and you can lower them below shoulder level.
  6. Do the same for ten reps.

Dumbbell Chest Press Tips

  1. Avoid colliding your dumbbells at the top of the movement.
  2. Make sure that your back is not arching. You must press your feet to the ground too.
  3. Start with a lightweight and increase it gradually.
  4. Pay attention to your breathing throughout the exercise.
